More about Uprising Theatre Company:
Uprising Theatre Company really, truly believes that stories can change the world. Something powerful happens when we get away from facts and figures and spreadsheets and simply tell each other our stories. It makes the “big issues” more tangible and it allows us to wrap our minds around how we can be a part of bringing about change.
Uprising tells powerful stories about important topics in a way that’s not preachy or strident, but is instead rooted in people’s lived experiences. From mental illness and suicide to transgender issues, we tell stories that come from people who have lived those experiences.
But we don’t want it to stop with just telling stories. We hope people are so inspired by stories that they want to make a concrete difference. So we partner with local organizations who are working on the issues presented in the show to funnel the energy and excitement generated by storytelling into action that will make the world a better place.
Because stories can change the world.
